  • Kinisia Merlot/Nero d’Avola di Sicilia

    This is a really successful blend of Nero d’Avola and Merlot bringing out the best of both varietals in a wine that is better than the sum of its two parts. The lovely rich but slighly light NdA bulked up by rich and soft Merlot.  This differs from the Passole in that it is predominantly Merlot backed up by NdA rather than the other way round. Then it spends eight months in oak barrels giving it a lovely, spicey and elegant texture. I’m getting blackcurrants and lots of chocolate!

  • Peninsula de Lisboa Portuguese Red OOS sorry

    Step-by-step we increase the intensity and complexity from the Lisbon Region. This time a blend of Castelão (50%) and Aragonez (50%) which is aged for six months in oak barrels. There’s a beautiful clean structure about this wine (maybe the absence of the rustic Touriga?). Harmonious and spicy. Yum.

  • Quinta de San Francisco Portuguese Red

    Single Estate red from the Obidos region. Castelão (60%), Aragonez (20%),Touriga Nacional (20%) are aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels. This was my pick of the family’s three estate wines. Maybe it’s the Touriga Nacional which gives it an almost violet fruit over and above the soft, oakiness. It has won Gold at four separate competitions this year.

  • “The Prince” from The Treaty Port Estate China

    From a vineyard established in 2005 on the Shandong peninsula by Chris Ruffle comes his unique, gold-medal winning, Petit Verdot/Arinarnoa blend.  Gently oaky, this is a lovely clean, velvety red from one of the world’s new emerging vineyard areas. The Prince rather liked braised pork and Beijing roast duck, could go rather well with this wine!

  • “The Inspector General” from The Treaty Port Estate China

    From a vineyard established in 2005 on the Shandong peninsula by Chris Ruffle comes this classic Bordeaux blend, aged in french oak barrels and displaying ripe, dark fruits and a hint of vanilla oak. No surprise that Chateau Lafite chose to make their first Chinese wine, Long Dai 2017, from neigbouring fields! Chris’s vines are older, of course, and 2014 was an excellent vintage. This is a limited release of 5000 bottles.

  • Rioja Martinez Alesanco Reserva “Seleccion”

    A very “select” wine.

    “Pedro Martínez Alesanco Selección is our most personal wine and marks the future of our family’s wines. It is the perfect blend of the three most important varieties of our winery: Maturana Tinta, Tempranillo, and Garnacha Tinta. It is an unmistakable and stylish wine, where its varieties travel the roads of Badarán and the Upper Najerilla valley, giving us aromas of violet, lavender, ripe peach, and licorice.”
